Composer- John Jacob Niles/arr.Rutter/adapt.Chidester
Finger technique- E
Counting ability- ME
Ensemble difficulty- ME
In my opinion, Sir. John Rutter is one of the greatest living composers of my time and is more known for his vocal writing as this simple song illustrates. My adaptation of his original Sop./Alto./Tenor/Bass arrangement works very well for my current chamber ensemble.
I hope you enjoy this arrangement for I consider it a very nice woodwind ensemble piece featuring my exceptional Double Bass player “Tall Bill”.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and supporters from the
